I had the day off and decided to run far enough so that this weekend’s half marathon would put me over the 26 mile mark. I was shooting for seven, and went just a little further. Tough run considering the effort I brought to yesterday’s speed runs; five of six miles yesterday were executed with high effort, and my hamstrings in particular protested. I think I would have benefited from some more stretching; as the ran went on, my legs did loosen up a little. Still, can’t complain, as I’ve only run this distance faster once, and that was at a race. I’ve earned three days off going into the Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon on Sunday.
